"Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow!"

Our God Is Enough!
Ever wanted another piece of cake and there wasn't enough?!  I'm SO glad that we serve a God that doesn't "run out" but always has enough and MORE than we could ever ask or think, the Bible tells us!  This Yellow Cake with Chocolate Fudge Icing was made my our son Bryan! (thanks to our 1st deputation and the icing recipe from Lisa Bailey!) His 1st cake to bake... ever... but I'm sure it won't be his last,  for the "baking bug" has hit him, big time! I think it may be the "tasting bug" that is really behind all of this, though, for this boy LOVES TO EAT!!!!
We have recently been challenged as a family to TRUST GOD on purpose!  Not to just "say" we trust... but to put our words into practice!  The life of George Meuller has been a great encouragement/challenge to take God at His word!  Trust and draw closer to Him. Not talk about our needs to others.  Just Trust our Heavenly Father and watch Him work!  I am finding Him real!  HE IS INDEED, ENOUGH!
We had brand new believers in our church with us recently.  None-Native-English-Speakers... and a dear Brother at our church started the chorus. "Our God is Enough"
These are the words in case you need a reminder:

"Our God is Enough, He's proved it ore' and ore.
He's never known to fail.
His power still prevails.
Down through the test of time,
God's people always find.
Whatever Life may bring,
God is enough!"
Sitting there beside them,  listening as they processed what the English words were saying... how blessed my heart became as they agreed and quickly said in their broken English, "Yes!!!.. GOD IS ENOUGH!!!!!"  That reality was made it all the more fresh to my soul.  Like we "see" God's creation in our world again through the eyes of a child...whether it be the beauty of a dandelion, or a butterfly, or a little tiny ant crawling on the sidewalk!  So through the eyes of a New Believer we see again our Savior and fall with bended knee and worship Him a new!  "Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow!"

Old Church pics!
Loved the color combinations here!
All Smiles!
Loved the old church replica still preserved here in Cinci area.  The March winds were with us this day, but otherwise we couldn't have asked for a better photo shoot day. Thanks B for your photo ideas and Kate for your expertise and camera too!  Fun times!

Over looking the Ohio!

I Loved the real life of this one! ~Mommy
The gift of music has been evident in your life for years now.  We are so grateful to the Lord for the talents that He has given you, but even more that you give them back to Him by using them for His glory!
Natasha your last post blessed our hearts.  Our prayer is that you will always keep God the Center of your life and endeavor to always please and obey Him, wholly!  We can promise you that if you do, you will have complete fulfillment, adventure and even the most pleasure that life could ever give you. All because of Jesus!
Our prayers are daily that you will continue to know God  and grow in his knowledge and truth!
Blessings are ours b/c of God's gift on loan to us -you!
We love you so MUCH!!!
Daddy and Mommy
